Coastal erosion and what Yorkshire resorts expect of our politicians at this election – GP Taylor

IN this election, the Yorkshire coast appears to be a million miles away from the minds of the political parties in Westminster. Our unique coastal needs are nothing but a footnote in their thinking.

Seaside towns and villages have substantially different needs from those near or in major conurbations. In Whitby, there are major problems to do with transport. The roads out of the town are from the last century.

Please appoint Minister for the Coast so our resorts are not left all...
